Amsterdam is actually quite a small city, but with really a lot of attractions to offer. Unfortunately if you are a tourist, Amsterdam transit system is not that great and you’ll get confuse soon enough. It is like you are in a 360° movie, everywhere you stand you are surrounded by interesting places to see and you don’t know which way to go first.
It will also be handy to make a list of things to see when you visit Amsterdam to avoid being overwhelmed. The cheapest way to go around Amsterdam is to buy a day ticket (or multidays). With this ticket you could ride the trams, metros, ferries or trains the whole day as long as you are still in the city, so even if you’d make a wrong turn you don’t have to pay the extra transportation cost.
Now as for market-wise, I narrowed it down to three for you:
- Flower Market, do something different, bring flower buds as souvenirs for your loved ones back home.
2. Waterlooplein Vintage market, for the vintage fashionistas this will be your place, some of the stalls sell clothes by the kilograms.
3. Albert Cuyp Market, This is literally the melting pot of Amsterdam, I kid all the time that you could stop traveling the world and go to this market instead. Here you could find a lot of exotic food and herbs among other things.
